The School of Transborder Studies

We strive to stimulate academic discovery that solves critical problems at the intersection of borders and society. Explore our degree programs to learn more.

Do you want to learn about the United States/Mexico borderlands and the people who live there?

Do you want to know more about these people’s history, literature, politics, culture, and social practices? Then you are in the right place! 

Our BA degree in Transborder Chicana/o and Latino/a Studies prepares you for a career as a teacher, lawyer, social worker, or for positions in government or social service agencies.  Our students have also gone on to attend prestigious graduate and professional schools in the country such as Stanford, Harvard, and Columbia.

Our mission is to inspire and empower our students by providing an innovative learning experience that prepares them to be agents of change in a challenging environment.
